I purchased my 2007 Acura MDX Technology (Nav, Fancy stereo with DVD audio, Talk to Car, Bluetooth) in 2011 with 84k in average condition but meticulous maintenance at dealer (CarFax) from the owner for $17k(trade in offered to him).
It has been good in terms of reliability and really maintenance over my 9 year ownership period.
I followed the vehicle computer reminder in terms of services for oil, transmission(2x), AWD(once). I only ignored the valve adjustment and had timing belt only (no water pump/tblet tensioners etc) for $550 + $200 plugs at 105k. Most services done at small garage and never exceeded $100 - $150.
Unexpected repairs: ~($1000)
105k acc belt tensioner - $100
100k and 150k - two AC relays self installed for $10 Honda part each time, too cheap to buy the $30 revised on that did not croak
140k - Speed sensor - $140
150k - exhaust donut and bolts - $80
185k - transmission pressure sensor - $200
170k - alternator - $500
*Powerful smooth Honda V6 (300HP),
* incredible AWD (can shift power front to back and even individual wheel and overspeed them slightly for handling)
* Comfortable front back for 4 passengers, but can handle 7 which has been great
* Low cost maintenance except the $800 105k service(plugs/timing belt/skipped valve adjustment)
* durable parts - still running around on original struts and suspension parts - tired but works
* Everything you touch feels decent and well though out
* Still smooth/repsonive 5 speed Honda auto despite everyone thinking Honda transmissions are questionable
* My $65/hr small garage (one man show) Subie specialist works on it with pleasure and ease. Honda's are easy/simple service for him
* Rust between wheel wheel and door both side, one has a hole now
* Poor MPG/fuel pig (17.5 average) on Premium. Best is 22 MPG highway worst is 15MPG city/cold
* Wind leaks since I bought it
* Leather was lower grade and wore faster IMHO then luxury and even VW cars I have seen
The potential death is going to be severe rust at some poor body work when I purchased and is getting estimates of $1200+ to fix. It won't pass NH state inspection
Bummed I wish it could have hit 200k but have 195k. Debating to buy another recent generation MDX and have a do over or fix the rust and drive another 1-2 years.
